SummaryEdit

Description
English: Flight trajectory of Apollo 17 from liftoff to end of S-IVB first burn.

- Altitude is given above Fischer Ellipsoid, e.g. EPO altitude 172km at 6:40 = 6545km geocentric distance = 167km above a spherical Earth of radius 6378.1 km

- Gravity (total acceleration) was calculated according to G = norm(g(r)-aSF)/g0,

where g(r) = gravity in geocentric distance r, aSF = inertial (space fixed) acceleration, g0 = standard gravity on surface
